EPISODE 156: AV and the Inner City

Hear how front-yard concerts connected a community

On this episode, our correspondent Theodora MacLeod introduces us to the very talented AV (Ann Vriend). We learn about how the inner-city has shaped her music, and how one front porch in the neighbourhood of McCauley has brought people together.

AV was a recipient of a 2022 Edmonton Artists’ Trust Fund Award. The Edmonton Artists’ Trust Fund (EATF) is a joint initiative of Edmonton Arts Council and Edmonton Community Foundation.

It invests in the creative community by supporting living and working expenses, allowing exceptional local artists to devote time to their artistic career. It also encourages artists to stay in the Edmonton community.

The EATF just celebrated their 25th anniversary on November 20th, when it awarded 25 new recipients for the award.
